Four Los Angeles area gang members, Spud and Jason (Belok) of the Bloods, and Cedric (Baby Nerve) and Nate (Caliber) of the Crips recount how they got involved with gangs, everyday life as a gang member, the drugs and killings associated with gangs, what gangs represent to them, the economic problems confronting inner city youth, harassment by the police, relationships between Koreans and African-Americans, gangs coming together to protect their community, voting, and tearing down the system. RECORDED: Los Angeles, May 1992.

The preservation of these tapes was funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and by listeners of Pacifica Radio in 2010. Preservation services provided by George Blood Audio and Video.
